Publisher Comments:

A useful balance of theory, applications, and real-world examples

The Finite Element Method for Engineers, Fourth Edition presents a clear, easy-to-understand explanation of finite element fundamentals and enables readers to use the method in research and in solving practical, real-life problems. It develops the basic finite element method mathematical formulation, beginning with physical considerations, proceeding to the well-established variation approach, and placing a strong emphasis on the versatile method of weighted residuals, which has shown itself to be important in nonstructural applications.

The authors demonstrate the tremendous power of the finite element method to solve problems that classical methods cannot handle, including elasticity problems, general field problems, heat transfer problems, and fluid mechanics problems. They supply practical information on boundary conditions and mesh generation, and they offer a fresh perspective on finite element analysis with an overview of the current state of finite element optimal design.

Supplemented with numerous real-world problems and examples taken directly from the authors' experience in industry and research, The Finite Element Method for Engineers, Fourth Edition gives readers the real insight needed to apply the method to challenging problems and to reason out solutions that cannot be found in any textbook.

Book News Annotation:

Originally developed to study stresses in complex airframe structures, the finite element method is a numerical analysis technique for obtaining approximate solutions to a wide variety of engineering problems. This textbook explains the finite element method for advanced engineering students. The work is divided into two sections devoted firstly to a theoretical understanding of the development of the method and how it works, and secondly to real- world applications of the method. The method is applied to problems for which classical methods are insufficient, such as elasticity problems, general field problems, fluid mechanics problems, and heat transfer problems.
